    Very impressive, Marc. Nice and lightweight with fast recycle.

    I'll definitely be stopping by the Hensel booth.

    For smaller, more portable units, these look very nice, and have decent specs for sure. They also look nicely built and Hensel seems to be doing a pretty decent job there also.

    Do these also have the wireless operational capabilities as the other Hensels? Looks like one could manage a couple sets of these to handle most lighting except really big needs.

    Wonder if anybody else is able to deliver this kind of performance in such a small package. Very nice.

    Yes, the new Porty's have the transmitter system that can be used to power on and off the modeling lights (important with battery units) ... as well as move the levels of each head up and down from the camera position.

    Somebody was asking about pricing and availability on these. Here is a link with info from Rob Galbraith's site:

    Just saw this update on Galbraith's site that these units will begin shipping earlier than originally announced. Here is the link and some extra points:

    Have to say, these are pretty slick looking devices.....not cheap, but impressive in output, portability, and all that good stuff.
